Defining Information Literacy

Information Highways has an Intersting Piece by Susanne Hasulo who says most people tend to equate information literacy with the mastery of various technologies to access and retrieve information, with less thought to how to evaluate and apply that information.

\"We\'re in an era where every client that phones me says \'How can I take more costs out of my business?\' Stop treating everything you do heroically and start treating your process and your [employees\'] knowledge as an asset available for use. Because the more we look at it, the more we realize that the real savings comes from exactly that, from turning data into knowledge.\"
